Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Apart from the likes of the Mechwarrior series, mainly aimed at hard-core gamers, robot fighting sims have not really caught on in the West. Due to an extremely canny piece of marketing on Konami's part Z.O.E. comes packaged with a demo of the sequel to Metal Gear Solid, a serious candidate for best game ever and the game that introduces the delights of Gundam, Patlabor and others to a more general European audience.

Forget the derivative sci-fi back story: Z.O.E. is all about arcade action. Pilot your oversized Mech through dozens of encounters with other automated units all out for your blood. An element of strategy is added by the arenas you fight in, a cross between Judge Dredd's Mega City 1 and Akira 's Neo Tokyo--too much collateral damage to the local citizenry or architecture and it's game over. The graphics are astonishing: laser blasts and explosions fill the screen and no matter how many enemies you face the frame rate zips along. Like a lot of Japanese conversions, the longevity of the game is questionable, but while it lasts you will experience an adrenaline-packed arcade romp

But, in all honesty, a lot (a majority?) of UK gamers will be buying Z.O.E for the one-level demo of MGS2: Sons of Liberty. This is probably the most anticipated console game ever and will be a defining moment for the PS2--if the whole game lives up to the demo's promise then the wait will have been worth it. But if you have got Z.O.E. for the demo, make sure that you play the main game as well otherwise you will be missing out on an exhilarating if short-lived gaming experience. --Michael Bartley

Product Description

The humans living on Antilia, a colony in orbit of the planet Jupiter, think of themselves as "Enders" since they're essentially at the end, or furthest reach, or human civilization. After a sudden attack by a fanatical Martian military regime known as the Z.O.E., Ender Leo Stenbuck finds himself with access to the one weapon that can save Antilia: a mechanised attack vehicle called an orbital frame.

In Zone of Enders, you'll command the orbital frame against several robotic opponents. The game features agile 3-D movement, both in the air and on land, and smart camera work that keeps your opponent in view during the most intense, furious battles. The game also comes with a playable demo of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty.

5.0 out of 5 stars ZOE-Another Konami classic 26 Jun 2001
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
Having never played a Mech fighting game i actually like I was worried at what this one might be like. To be fair i probably wouldnt of bought it if it were not for the MGS 2 demo.
Uppers: Incredible graphics Multi-player mode to be unlocked Good story Interesting characters Fast Nice Sound Good battle system
Downers: Short Ends so suddenly Multi-player not brilliant
Overall this is a great game dispite its shortness. Well deserves the ***** it has been awarded.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mechs a nice change 18 Nov 2002
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
The 'Mech' videogame genre is hysterically popular in Japan, but no more than a niche market elsewhere; it can often seem over-complicated and too technical to potential new gamers. However, if you like the idea of giant robots dukeing it out but were intimidated by the complexity of games like Armoured Core, this is the perfect solution. It's smart, stylish and very easy to get into; the controls are simple and fairly intuitive, although rather on the ultra-responsive side - one flick of the analogue stick and you go shooting off into the stratosphere. It's by Hideo 'Metal Gear' Kojima (that probably isn't the right spelling, sorry) so you can expect polished graphics and a 'deep' philosophical storyline told in numerous lengthy cut scenes. As many people have pointed out, the game is quite short and not very difficult to complete, plus there is a fair amount of repetition in the levels... you're just basically fighting enemies and collecting things in the same kinds of environments all the way through. Nevertheless, at its new budget price it's well worth a go, and I for one will be looking out for the apparently much-improved sequel next year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, but far too short 21 Aug 2001
Format:Video Game
Alright, alright. I admit it. I originally only bought this game for the MGS2 demo (which is GREAT, by the way!) I'm a fan of anime and mecha, but mecha games always struck me as kind of mindless and boring. Not so with ZOE. It's beautiful - probably the most beautiful game on the PS2 at the moment. It's got a decent (if lamentably short) storyline. Leo is irritating, and ADA would be better off if she had just dumped him from the start. But you don't really see much of him, so it doesn't matter. And I guess someone was needed to pilot Jehuty. All in all, I think this would have made a fantastic game, if it hadn't been an obvious set up for a sequel. Rather than standing alone as a single game, you get the feeling that it's just the first chapter in a story. The ending was kind of a let-down, but I have faith that ZOE2 will be longer and more of a stand alone game.

Easily the best PS2 game currently available and well up there with the masters of the mech combat sim, ZOE really is a game that shows that the PS2 can do. Blessed with gorgeous cutscenes, intelligent enemy AI and a quality anime storyline -- doesn't deserve to be as overlooked as it is.

4.0 out of 5 stars ZOE- Too Short. 23 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
Okay, firstly, ZOE rules. The combat is worryingly intuitive, the graphics excellent, the story on par with the best mecha anime around (well, almost) and the only real problem is the length! it's over way too quickly- on Hard mode I cleared it the weekend I got it. But it is one of the best mech games out there. Forget Mechwarrior IV- there's a new frame in town!

5.0 out of 5 stars ZOE- pretty darn good 20 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
Never before have i bought a game like ZOE before. All my previous purchases were, compared to this so limited. There were times where i wish i could just fly away, but i was not allowed to leave the ground, not having the freedom that would be make the game sooo much better.ZOE gives you the chance to fight with complete and utter freedom, at mind boggling speeds with a great framerate.The constant challenge is always there, searching for that elusive, yet vital weapon and battling the giant monolithic bosses is genuinly fun, plus everything looks so cool, from the glitter of the metallic orbital frames(another word for a big ol' giant robot), to the huge explosions and detailed towns.Couple that with a great storyline, and constant playing options (that secret ending is much more satysfying, aswell as the multiplayer mode), you've definitely got your 40s worth. If you bought it just for the Metal gear solid 2 demo, you'll get a lot more than expected.

Fun game with enjoyable story; the game is a reasonable length, probably best as a rental for most people to enjoy.
